Ana, first named Atlantic storm of 2021, forms near Bermuda

Source: AP

MIAMI (AP) The first named Atlantic storm of the season is posing no threat to land and is expected to dissipate in a few days. The National Hurricane Center in Miami says Subtropical Storm Ana is drifting east over the Atlantic Ocean after bringing rain to Bermuda.

Ana was located about 175 miles (280 kilometers) northeast of Bermuda with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph (75 kph), the hurricane center said in an 11 a.m. advisory. It was moving west at 3 mph (almost 5 kph).

The system was expected to continue its slow and erratic motion, and then dissipate in a few days, forecasters said.

A tropical storm watch for Bermuda, in effect earlier Saturday, was discontinued. The island likely will experience locally gusty winds, weather forecasters said.

1. That seems pretty far north

For a Tropical Storm to form.

4. We got lucky last year (southeast NC)

My first hurricane season (moved from MD where hurricanes are not (yet) a huge concern. We had one storm hit the area (Isaias), but it was barely a CAT 1. I fully expect to have to endure a stronger one sooner rather than later...

5. Hurricane warnings scare me to death. Why? Because house insurance does not cover damage.

I was told by my insurance agent that there is no coverage for damage from any 'named storm'. It seems to me that the powers that make these decisions name about every storm that erupts in the tropics...or elsewhere. I don't know if there is coverage that you can buy but you can bet your boots it is too expensive.
Homeowners insurance is expensive in itself, read closely and you will find exceptions to so many events about which you thought you had coverage.
Good grief, I'm sick of all this baloney.

Hope you are all safe and have some kind of policy that covers damage in the event of any storms.

I'm not in a tornado area but if one comes my way, no coverage unless you buy an expensive policy. How do the poor folks in the vulnerable areas survive these disasters?

First named storm today, here we go.....
